Former Staffer Leonardo Fleck joins the Board of CSF-Brazil

CSF is proud to announce Leonardo Fleck as CSF-Brazil’s newest board member. Leo is a Program Officer at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. If his name sounds familiar, it’s because Leo has a long history with CSF. As an early staff member of CSF-Brazil, Leo was instrumental in establishing our presence in Latin America. Leo joined CSF in 2005 shortly after earning his master’s degree in conservation biology with an emphasis in natural resource economics. He was CSF-Brazil's Senior Economic Analyst and Technical Program Manager as well as a lead cost-benefit analysis instructor for CSF courses in Brazil and beyond. Leo also took the lead on economic analyses in other parts of South America, including in Peru and Bolivia.
